I haven’t posted for months, because I thought there was no “progress” to report – no hints or clues! The background – we are both 22 and have been together for 8 1/2 years. 🙂 We’ve just finished university and are moving in together next week!
We’ve just come home from a month travelling around Europe, and Fiance proposed while we were out walking in the Swiss Alps!! 🙂 It was wonderful. We had a timeline that he would propose in the next year and a half, so I honestly thought I had months still so wait and was taken completely by surprise! He says my face was a picture. We kept it a secret for almost 2 weeks until we got home and could tell our parents in person! I don’t have a ring yet, we will go and choose one together which is what I wanted.
Thank you, bees, for the sense of companionship you have given me during my “waiting” period – a year and a half! It’s meant a lot to read about women in a similar position and I wish all of you the very best and hope your proposals come soon!

Thank you so much everyone! It was wonderful and we definitely hope to go back there one day. Keeping it a secret for a while was actually really fun and exciting, we kept whispering, “my secret fiance!” to each other and giggling. 🙂 I found it so hard not to tell my best friend when I was texting her though!
